TWO SENIOR ADVISERS have been promoted to partner at Bishop Fleming.

Fleur Lewis and Hazel Tucker step up, with Lewis specialising in audit and Tucker in business services.

Lewis joined the Top 50 firm from EY as director of audit, while Tucker joined the firm in 2005 and has most recently served as director of business services - both from the Exeter office. Tucker will now be based in Torquay.

The firm, which most recently posted double digit fee growth to £16.3m, now has 26 partners of which ten were appointed in the last three years.

Matthew Lee, managing partner, said: "We take great pride in the fact that most of our partners have been ‘home-grown' within the firm. We believe that this policy is at the heart of why we have won so many national awards and been the country's fastest growing accountancy firm for two years running.

"Hazel has become a major player in our services to owner-managed businesses, and in our specialist team serving healthcare clients like dentists and care-homes. She will be a strong addition to our Torbay operations.

"Fleur joined us from Ernst & Young as an experienced expert in guiding large corporate businesses and has developed advanced skills and qualifications spanning such sectors as property, marine, retail, and technology", he added.

In other news for the firm Andy Richens, technical tax director, has agreed to spend more time as an adviser to the Chancellor's Office of Tax Simplification (OTS). He has been seconded to the OTS as an adviser on small business taxation issues.

Andrew Browne, head of tax at Bishop Fleming, said: "This development is a huge accolade for our approach to serving the taxation issues for owner-managed businesses, which was recognised by the firm's national best tax practice award."
